    Hi, My fiancé & I want to stay at Animal Kingdom for the 1st time. He's insisting on Kidani, but I'm curious about Jambo. Which one would you recommend? Is this a romantic resort hotel? Thanks so much.

    Hi Gabrielle!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and congratulations on your engagement. This is such an exciting time for you, so thanks for allowing me to play a tiny role.

    All of the Deluxe Resort hotels are incredibly romantic. My husband and I cherish our time spent on our private balcony enjoying the peace of the early morning or late night when our kiddos are sound asleep. We just breathe in the Magical Disney air and live in the moment. I think you will find this especially true from a Savanna View Villa at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas in both Kidani Village or Jambo House with all there is to see just beyond your railing. 

    While it's a close race, my personal preference is Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village. An afternoon enjoying Samawati Springs Pool and Maji Pool Bar is an afternoon well spent! Plus, buses bound for the theme parks generally stop at Kidani Village, then Jambo House, and off to adventure. During the early morning rush, it's great to be one of the first families to board so that you can ensure a seat without the risk of needing to wait for a second bus. Then, at the end of the evening, you are the first to hop back off.

    Oh! Definitely schedule an Advance Dining Reservation at the delicious and ultra-romantic Sanaa, located on the first floor. You don't want to miss that. 

    Wishing you many magical memories,
